of Golden State Warriors They are winners. After their fourth championship in eight years, everything is pointing to Golden State. Sure, they have some tough financial decisions to make next year, but right now the Warriors are on top of the world.
Stephen Curry finally won his first NBA Finals MVP, Klay Thompson picked up where he left off from injury, and Andrew Wiggins made his first All-Star Game and became the second best player (in games) on a championship team.
But not everyone in the Golden State is winning. They have completed the most successful season that he has ever seen Donte DiVincenzo added And Jamaican green To replace lost property, but as Zach Buckley of Bleacher ReportThere was one big time loser for Golden State this summer – Chris Chiozza.
“The Warriors sent nine players to free agency this summer. Since then, six have earned new NBA contracts. Another, Andre Iguodala, has a deal with the Dubs if he wants. Another, Nemanja Bjelica, could have stayed in the league but opted for a European deal instead.
“As for Chris Chiozza, he is still unsigned and may not have a way back into the league,” Buckley wrote.
That being said, there may still be room for hope for Chioza.
Chioza has a chance, but not a great one.
Despite not getting regular minutes anywhere, Chiozza has consistently found his way back into the league. He played for four different franchises in four seasons – Houston Rockets, Washington Wizards, Brooklyn NetsAnd fighters. Because of this, Buckley believes that he may have a chance to enter the NBA next season.
However, the 26-year-old has been on an NBA roster in each of the past four seasons, so don’t count him out. But while his 34 games in 2021-22 were a career high, he was unable to force his way into a full-time rotation role and his career averages included just 3.3 points per game on 35.3 percent shooting. Buckley explained..
As mentioned, Chiozza struggled to find a regular role in any rotation he was in. In 91 total NBA games over four years of experience, he is averaging just 11.4 minutes per game. 3.3 points, 1.3 rebounds and 2.4 assists He shot 35.3% from the field and 34.3% from behind the three-point line.
But even if Chiozza has another opportunity, that opportunity may not be in Golden State.
Chiozza needs to explore elsewhere
Although Chiozza played in a career-high 34 games for the Warriors last year, it’s highly unlikely he’ll earn another roster spot with them next season.
“It looks like the door to the Dubs is closed, so if Chiozza hopes to stay in this league, he may be headed elsewhere, possibly on a training camp deal if he can get one.” Beckley said..
There’s always a chance Chiozza will get a training-camp opportunity this summer and find his way onto another roster next year, but his time in Golden State appears to be over.
